Thank you for visiting Journey to Healing & Joy!

We are a community of women whose lives have been impacted by our partners' sexual addiction.
Each of us cares deeply about the heartache and confusion you feel
and wants to provide encouragement, hope, and support.
We offer a variety of ways to connect.

About Our Ministry

About Our Ministry

Journey to Healing and Joy is a ministry for wives of sex addicts. Here you will not automatically be labeled codependent. Rather, based on recent research, we believe most partners of sex addicts are suffering from trauma, and that many of their symptoms will ease as their trauma is addressed.

The Tool of Attitude


Marsha Means, MA

At the risk of appearing to take your heart-ripping pain lightly, I want to share two tools that helped me in my own healing journey, and continue to inspire me every day. I hope you can trust that I’m not being glib in sharing them, but rather I don’t want to omit a tool that has the power to...

How the Triple-A Approach Tool Helped Me Survive and Find the Treasure


Marsha Means, MA

Tripple Aces

If you are near the beginning of this journey, my heart really goes out to you. I clearly remember how lost in sorrow—and in life--I felt back then. I remember being disappointed when I woke up each morning for several weeks. My hope had been that I could die while I slept! That’s pretty bad...

Tools for Your Search for Treasure


Marsha Means, MA

I recently watched a movie that provided a powerful metaphor for this journey we’re on as we continue to heal and grow and do our part to become all we were created to be. “The Monuments Men” tells the true story of a crew of art experts as they recovered works of Italian and European art stolen...

Marsha Means, MA

Forgive me if you find that title offensive. You may be thinking, Who is she trying to fool by using the word treasure in reference to my trauma? Well, it took me time to get here too. Years passed before I began to recognize that indeed I had actually gained many gifts because I endured the...

Yet as a teen I could see how some, especially women, in our congregation placed my dad on a pedestal. They seemed to make him their spiritual idol; the “god” of their faith. But now, decades...

Some of our readers know that I am walking with my mother, who is about to turn 90, through the painful and difficult valley of dementia. There are times I share a tiny bit with my groups so that the emotion I am carrying these days won’t get in the way of group process. I’ve learned emotion...

To Tell or Not to Tell Our Children?


Marsha Means, MA

I know this title presents a divisive question, which is why I’ve chosen to avoid it over the years. Even my colleagues disagree on the answer. For that reason, I typically tell women it’s a question each of us needs to answer for ourselves. But recently an email from a former client changed my...

Acceptance: A Difficult but Essential Step in Our Healing


Coach Katherine

Accepting that your new reality is a part of your marriage and story is a required first step if you hope to heal. But it’s also one of the most gut-wrenching things you will ever have to do. A marriage compromised by sex addiction is simply not what you signed up for! But if you want to heal...
